Crawford, who uses a street-tough, Noo Yawk accent as Annie for this production, is originally from California, where she saw a touring production of Annie (twice).
"I remember that after the show, when the girl who played Annie walked out of the stage door and everyone was like, 'Woo!,' and she was signing all these autographs," Crawford told Playbill.com earlier this fall. "I thought that was so cool. I don't know why; I was like, 'I wish that could be me someday.'"
